The annual Flag Dance is the highlight of Jerusalem Day, one of the most joyous in Israel, celebrating the miraculous liberation of the eternal Jewish capital.
Jerusalem Day, or Yom Yerushalayim in Hebrew, falls on the 28th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar, commemorating the day in June 1967, during the Six Day War, when the eternal Jewish capital of Jerusalem was reunified.
In celebration, each year tens of thousands of people participate in the annual Jerusalem Day parade, known as Rikud Degalim – The Flag Dance. It begins in the afternoon and ends at the Kotel – the Western Wall.
For 2,000 years, the Jewish people have been facing Jerusalem in their prayers, waiting for the return to their Holy City.
Watch the profound joy experienced on Jerusalem Day!
